This year’s Women in Business Leadership Awards will be happening at the Swissotel on  Saturday, March 22. In case you aren’t familiar, this annual award ceremony, co-presented by Expatriate Professional Women's Society (EPWS) and Hult Women in Business Club, recognizes women who have positively impacted Shanghai’s business landscape.

Besides being a swanky, five-star affair, this year’s gala also has a Breakfast at Tiffany’s theme.  

The year’s nominees have been divided into five categories: professional excellence, innovation, entrepreneurship, societal contribution and young professional excellence. On Saturday, five of these hardworking ladies will walk away with a trophy and a scholarship for an EMBA program at Hult International Business School’s Shanghai Campus. 

Tickets are still available, but going fast. Get yours by emailing [email protected]. Guests are asked to wear a splash of red to show their support for all of the women on stage. Cocktails start at 7PM; dinner is served at 8:30PM. RMB500.
